Christmas Wishes!

Well, Ken and I haven't done much regarding our sailboat preparations lately.  However, part of our cruising plan is to get our house in better shape in order to sell it this coming year.  Ken has squeezed in a little exterior work on our house whenever the weather cooperated and he had a break in between jobs.  The soffit and fascia are prepped and ready for paint! 

 We've had the Christmas tree up since Thanksgiving and my daughter and I bought all kinds of stuff yesterday for baking.  I've always thought that turning on the Christmas tunes while baking chocolate chip cookies and fudge with my family is the perfect way to get in the Christmas mood!  We'll probably be filling the house up with the scent of cookies and fudge tomorrow, then package some of it (we have to save some for us) to share with others.  The annual Christmas boat parade passed by our home Saturday night, and they really had some beautiful boats this year (where was my camera?!)  It made us think about joining the parade next year.  Looks like we'll need to get those mast steps so we can decorate Nirvana!

We've been thinking about several "future cruisers" that we've been following that have made the transition to "present cruisers" in the past few months.  Some have made passages from Texas to Florida so far, and a few have made their way down the East coast and are now in either Florida or the Bahamas.  We've followed them along the way and are learning a lot from them.  We're so happy for all of them and look forward to the day that we all meet!  We know that this holiday season will be extra special for them, as it will be their first holiday season "livin' the dream"!

  So, wherever you are for the holidays Ken and I wish you all a "Merry Christmas", "Happy Hannukah", "Kwanza" or just "Happy Holidays"!  Whatever way you say it, we wish you all good times and a new year filled with living your dreams, or at least getting close to it!

Here's a little video from Jimmy Buffet explaining what it's like to spend Christmas in the islands.  Enjoy!

Hasta luego ... until then.  Mid-Life Cruising!

Loved the video. Hubby and I are going on a cruise to the Caribbean in February. Can't wait.

Have a terrific day and a very Merry Christmas. :)
